i'll let it do the talking...

Getting Off Right is a plain-speaking, unbiased how-to survival guide for injection drug users. Written by and for users and service providers, the manual is a compilation of medical facts, injection techniques, junky wisdom, common sense and harm reduction tips designed to keep users safe and healthy. Using easy to understand language, simple and clear illustrations, Getting Off Right is also a perfect desk reference and training tool for service providers. The 81-page manual is divided into five chapters and includes:
•Preparing yourself and your equipment.
•The basics of safer injection (with detailed diagrams of appropriate injection sites).
•Potential health complications: from abscesses to Endocarditis. and everything in between.
•Overdose and other medical emergencies.
•Where to get new equipment and what to do with the old.
With Getting off Right A Safety Manual for Injection Drug Users, HRC fills the void of information about safely injecting drugs.

fucking awesome amount of information, blunt discussion and diagrams... do yourself a favor and read it.
The entire manual is available online... you can even print it out in a printer-friendly form...
be well.
